The 25-year-old rehabbed star insists that her relationship with John Sundahl is purely professional — but her soon-to-be-ex-hubby insists they’re dating and her mother is thrilled the two are supposedly seeing each other, according to the National Enquirer.
“John’s smitten with Britney,” a source described as “close to the new couple” told the tab. “I’ve never seen him act so ridiculous with a girl. He’s so in love with her that he’s risking his career just to keep her happy.”
Wow. Uh wow. To be perfectly honest, we don’t even know where to start. If this is true, doesn’t it violate a fair amount of ethical standards? Sure we all wanted to see Tony Soprano replace Carmela with Dr. Melfi, but that’s just compelling television. Nay, it’s not television, it’s HBO. Back to Britney. Is she in need of a father figure? Does Kevin Federline know the whole truth? Why is she in need of drug counseling in the first place? Oh, that thing she had going on with the drug-induced meltdown. What civil servant wouldn’t want some princess (pop or actual royalty) to come sweep him out of his doldrums? Is this a reverse Cinderella? Is his plan to save her from the ‘big bad world’ while she saves him from a nine-to-five job? There are too many questions. We see this as the real-world equivalent of the Saturday Night Live sketch in which Britney wanted to live in the sewer with a homeless man named Woodrow (played by Tracy Morgan).
